HELP!!! What can I drink to get 8 glasses of water when I can't stand water?

No pop or sweet drinks either. Any ideas. I'm getting dehydrated. Need help!

  • Chop up some fresh strawberries and mix it in with your water.  My sister hates water also and that's what worked for her.

  • squeeze a little lemon into it, or oranges

  • a scare tactic: sorry hope this help: if you don't drink plenty of water your kidneys will be messed up and you might end up on dialisis....Plenty of water flushes out your system and body filters.....try drinking it very ice cold, with the ideas everyone mention above. Do it like kids do their vegies when they don't want to eat them: they eat it fast. smile!

  • Lemon, and splenda... It tastes great and you don't have to put a lot in it. You could also try crystal light drink mixes, although they are a little sweeter.

  • Drink it ice cold really fast or try different types of bottled water. I grew up on well water so now I can't stand city water. I am very picky about what types I drink. The good news is the more you drink water the more your body craves it.

  • That is a pretty good idea, MrsHouston, and I don't see why it wouldn't work with some other fruits as well. The only other thing I can think of is putting a little sugar in it. I personally don't care for most of those little drink mix things you can find at the store but my husband liked the koolaid drink mix.

  • Water is best and try warm or hot lemon water

  • Just chug it down without thought.

  • I can't have diet sugars or diet drinks either. Thank you though!
